Please Register Rising Kindergartners Now!

If you are a parent of a Rising Kindergartner or if you know families who have a child coming to Selwyn next year, please urge them to register their student in the front office today!

Why the urgency? The number of teachers Selwyn can hire is based on enrollment numbers. It’s imperative that student enrollment numbers are known, so please don’t delay!
A birth certificate and proof of residency are all that are needed for enrollment. Immunizations and health forms are due by the first day of school. If you have questions, please call the office. Thank you!
